There’s also an online talk you may enjoy: “Greece, Egypt, Byzantium, Persia, Weiner Werkstatte and More“.
Elisabeth Kley discusses her work and historical sources and influence – in this online class from The 92nd Street Y:
“Elisabeth Kley is a New York artist known for her black and white ceramic sculptures, drawings and site-specific paintings. She draws motifs from historic ornamentation found in cultures and styles including Roman, Egyptian, Byzantine, Islamic and Wiener Werkstate. Collapsing geography and history, she translates the imagery she finds into graphic all-over patterns that convey the opulence and spirit of their original sources.”
